Chinese Air Power.
By the turn of the century China had reaffirmed its position as one of the world’s leading military powers. With much importance attached to fleet renewal; the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) and the Naval Aviation are fielding new types, the emphasis shifting from local derivatives of Russian or western types to locally developed aircraft and helicopters. This new book focuses on the current PLAAF/PLANAF order of battle and describes the most advanced aircraft types currently in service or due to enter service.
Among the many aircraft reviewed in this volume are the Chengdu J-10 single-engined fourth-generation fighter in service since 2003, fifth-generation fighters like the twin-engined, tail-first Chengdu J-20, and the smaller Shenyang J-31 fifth-generation light fighter. Deliveries of Xian H-6K missile carriers, the Chinese version of the Tupolev Tu-16 bomber, are continuing, the H-6N with in-flight refuelling capability, entering service in 2019. Transport aviation is not forgotten either. China has also been building an aircraft carrier fleet equipped with the Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark shipboard fighter derived from the Sukhoi Su-33.
Unmanned aerial vehicles are also reviewed in this comprehensive survey.
The latest addition to the Chinese Army Aviation’s arsenal is the Harbin Z-20 medium utility helicopter which looks like the Sikorsky S-70 Black Hawk. Numbers of the CAIC Z-10 attack helicopter and the lighter Harbin Z-19 attack helicopter are also now operational. Unmanned aerial vehicles are also reviewed in this comprehensive survey.
